Named after the 60s fashion model turned award winning fashion photographer, this collection is said to be limited edition and is the 2016 Holiday collection of NARS. The only reason why I got this blush is because a fellow makeup junkie friend of mine bought a lot of products and this is one of those she tried once and did not like… So I bought it from her (Hooray for fellow makeup junkie friends!).
I would describe this as a warm pinkish red blush with a bit of shimmer. There were actually two blushes released under this collection: the Impudique and Isadora. When I checked the Isadora shade, I noticed that Impudique is the darker and bolder blush and I guess it was destiny that I got this because I am in love with it now.
THE GOOD BITS:

Pigmentation is superb. A little really does go a long way. I love how there is just a little bit of shimmer in it that it gives you the right and subtle kind of glow. It actually lasts the whole day. I do my makeup at 4:30 in the morning and the products was still on my face until I got home. Now I started asking myself, why did I not invest in good blushes like this before? Oh yeah, I was a cheapskate.
THE BAD BITS:
It’s not really a bad thing but just a tip… Just like what I’ve said before, a little goes a long way. This is my first NARS blush so when I used it, I thought I’d have to get a lot from the pan so I ended up having too much blush on my cheeks. Blending is the key to getting the perfect look of this blush on your skin. A little patience with blending will definitely make a difference.
If only this blush isn’t limited edition I would definitely repurchase. It may be more expensive than the typical blushes I use (Ever Bilena, Maybelline, Max Factor, NYX) but I think it’ll last on me for more than a year. I’ve been using it everyday and since I don’t need to get much product from the pan, I actually save a lot. I’m giving this a rating of 9/10. The price can be too steep for some people (still for me) and there may be other cheaper dupes available but if you’ve got the cash, girl, I don’t know why you wouldn’t get this (well, aside from the fact that I don’t think it’s still available). First time NARS blush users may find this a bit overwhelming too and blending (for some) may take a lot of getting used to but the outcome is great, I tell you.
